Post 2397 - Read It This Time!

Here is a link to an interview I did which I feel is criminally under read.  It is with our cottage neighbour James Taylor.  Not that James Taylor.  Another one.

We talked for hours.  It took me 9 months to transcribe and edit the thing, and more time again to move text around to make things flow better.  Then, I gave it to James to vet.  It was about a year after the interview that it finally went up.  And nobody seemed to care.

James has had a very interesting life and has an avocation that is nearly unique.  We discuss that plus things like minstrel shows, circus side shows, the art of transcription, and other stuff.

Please, read it this time.  I worked my ass off on it.

And, I still have a signed copy of one of his journals.  I really should have some kind of contest to give it away.

See you tomorrow.
